Peer reviews



"Assessment log - "Worklist

The WikiProject Engineering "assessment department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Engineering articles.

Assessments are performed via parameters in the {{"Engineering}} project banner which is posted to an article's talk page.

An assessment parameter (FA, GA, B, Start, or Stub) causes the article to be rated and grouped


The Engineering Collaboration of the week seeks to identify particular articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort. Every week, a single article is selected as the focus, and the project attempts to improve it, potentially to "featured article standards.

Any articles dealing with some aspect of Engineering (except for current "featured articles and "featured article candidates) are eligible, and everyone is invited to nominate articles.

The current Engineering Collaboration of the Week is: "Engineering

Peer review[edit]

The "peer review department of WikiProject Engineering conducts peer review of articles on request. The primary objective is to encourage better articles by having contributors who may not have worked on articles to examine them and provide ideas for further improvement.

The peer review process is highly flexible and can deal with articles of any quality; however, requesting reviews on very short articles may not be productive, as there is little for readers to comment on.

All reviews are conducted by fellow editors—usually members of WikiProject Engineering. While there is a general intent to expand this process to allow for review by subject experts, the preparations for this are not yet complete.

Requested images[edit]

The Requested images department aims to provide a collection of high-quality photographs, maps and images for use in Engineering articles. The department gathers existing public domain and free-license maps as well as creating new ones from other materials where no suitable maps can be found. All project members are welcome to request additional maps that may be needed for particular articles from the department.

"Wikimedia Commons has images of the engineering field. Many of these photos would make useful additions to many of our articles here which may be lacking adequate illustrations. Please see the Commons categories at right, or try searching on Commons since many images available there are not properly categorized yet.


The Outreach department acts as the project's central point of coordination for recruiting new members and maintaining the interest of current participants.

New articles[edit]

Please feel free to list your new Engineering-related articles here (newer articles at the top, please).

Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them, are at least over 1,000 characters, don't have any dispute templates on them, and cite their sources, should be suggested for the "Did you know? box on the Wikipedia "Main Page.

If you would like to request the creation of a particular article, please post in the "requests section.


The root category for this WikiProject is "Category:Engineering. Both the root categorty and its associated subcategories should be tagged with {{Engineering category}}.

Please note that the major category, "Category:Engineering, should be reserved for articles about disciplines of engineering, respectively, while specific individual engineering companies, engineers, concepts, etc. should be listed in the appropriate subcategories.

Next, please ensure that it has the correct engineering type categories (one or more, in some cases). Here are some major categories for engineering:

Issues of ongoing concern[edit]

Please report vandalism, copyright violations, addition of unsourced material and edit-warring to engineering articles here:

(One remark)

Please consider adding these articles to your watchlist, to help in reverting the ongoing vandalism which is certain to resume once semi-protection expires. Even during the period of semi-protection, some articles continue to be vandalized by recently registered accounts. Consider reporting users who chronically vandalize articles to "Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism.

If you find any other articles within the scope of this project which are being heavily vandalized (as a rough standard, over 10 vandals per day, or continual vandalism for several days such that the last 50+ edits are all vandalism and reverts, or 10+ vandalism / revert edits in 30 minutes), please report them at "Wikipedia:Requests for page protection and add them to the list above.

More articles or pages in need of attention could be found here at "Category:Unreferenced Engineering articles and "Category:Engineering articles needing attention.


Please direct assessment requests to "Wikipedia:WikiProject Engineering/Assessment#Requesting an assessment.

Please add any other requests related to the project and material within its scope below:
